A true workstation VST
SLiC, 16.06.2017
Firstly, this is V1, just out-there are a few bugs (nothing mission critical) and I am sure Steiny being a big reputable software house will iron them out very soon.

Secondly, I am not a fan of elicencer - although you don't need a hardware dongle, the software licence is just for one computer....with the hardware dongle you can move it around, but iloc is far more generous.

When you buy this you don't get disc, just the licence code, so whatever happens you have to download it (20Gig) - you can download it and run it for free (no limitations) for 30 days- so do that before you buy- ALWAYS!! Then you almost certainly buy it if it works OK on your system...

Other than that, it is just about perfect and can do just about everything....even sample! No brainier for the cost, ...but don't take my word for it, just download the demo!

Endlich mal ein "Sampler" der den Namen auch wirklich verdient hat!
d.r.music, 16.03.2018
Ich nutze den "HALion 6" hauptsächlich für eigenes Sounddesign im Homerecording Bereich.

Positiv ist natürlich die Problemlose Einbindung in Cubase sowie das Soundrecording in einem echten Software-Sampler.

Das die Hersteller so lange von einem "Sample-Player" zu einem"richtigen "Sampler" gebraucht haben ist nicht wirklich nach zu vollziehen. ("...besser spät als nie")

Der Content ist meiner Meinung nach, zu HALion 4 und 5 noch einmal richtig aufgewertet worden in Form von verschiedenen VSTi wie "Skylab" oder "Anima". Zusätzlich bekommt man dann auch den "HALion Sonic" als Content+VSTi noch dazu der hier wirklich nicht zu verachten ist.

Die Möglichkeiten der verschiedenen "Synthese-Formen" über die "Sound-Effekt-Bearbeitung" sowie ein echtes "Sample-Recording" ist so immens im HALion 6 das man fast erschlagen wird!

Nicht so gut fand ich die lieblose "HALion 6 - Box" wo nur der "Aktivierungs-Code" drin war. Zuerst wurden die Software-Boxen immer kleiner, dann wurden die "Handbücher" abgeschafft und jetzt gibt es nur noch downloads! Wenn die Hersteller in Zukunft immer so weiter machen, dan gibt es die "Lizenzen" bald nur noch per Post im Briefumschlag.

Mein persönliches Fazit ist das der "HALion 6" wirklich Einarbeitungszeit benötigt, aber wenn man sich darauf einlässt dann wird er zu einem echten Gewinn im Studio-Alltag.

bon produit, mais peut mieux faire
patdeb34, 19.10.2020
Bon produit ; installation facile, enregistrement facile quand on connait le fonctionnement Steinberg), banque de son très fournie, sons riches de TB qualité, édition assez aisée, immension Qbase et fonctionnement autonome OK. Dommage pour ; La DOC (en Français certes, mais interface en Anglais. Doc trop peu méthodologique, peu ou pas d'images ou schéma, agencement fouillis ou manquant). l'envoi = très long (+ de 15 j). Version boîte, mais avec n° série uniquement... téléchargement sur site (bonjour le fichier sons 30 Go)
